Toxicology and Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Research Group

ER-TOX LAB is a licensed medical biochemistry laboratory, especially specialized in therapeutic drug monitoring and illicit drug analysis. It is authorized by the Ministry of Health as a “confirmation laboratory” for illicit drug analysis and accepts samples from different cities of the country. Samples from Clinical Toxicology, the Substance Addiction Treatment Centers (AMATEM), and the Judicial Institutions are analyzed and reported in our laboratory by LC-MS/MS and GC-MS. Unknown screening can be done with extensive library screening for approximately 1000 illicit/abused substances, and nearly 100 of these substances can be analyzed quantitatively with confirmation methods using certified reference materials.

In addition, therapeutic drug monitoring of various drug groups, including antipsychotic, antidepressant, and immunosuppressive drugs, is analyzed and reported.
